Energetic challenges unmask the role of ovarian hormones in orchestrating ingestive and sex behaviors
Effects of ovarian hormones on sex and ingestive behavior are well studied, and yet, their role in diverting attention from food to sex has not been examined directly, possibly because theseExpand

Food Restriction-Induced Changes in Gonadotropin-Inhibiting Hormone Cells are Associated with Changes in Sexual Motivation and Food Hoarding, but not Sexual Performance and Food Intake
We hypothesized that putative anorectic and orexigenic peptides control the motivation to engage in either ingestive or sex behaviors, and these peptides function to optimize reproductive success inExpand

Second-generation antipsychotics cause a rapid switch to fat oxidation that is required for survival in C57BL/6J mice.
Some second-generation antipsychotics (SGAs) increase insulin resistance and fat oxidation, but counter intuitively they do not activate lipolysis. This seems unsustainable for meeting energyExpand

Sense and Nonsense in Metabolic Control of Reproduction
An exciting synergistic interaction occurs among researchers working at the interface of reproductive biology and energy homeostasis. Reproductive biologists benefit from the theories, experimentalExpand

Acute Metabolic Effects of Olanzapine Depend on Dose and Injection Site
Atypical antipsychotics (AAPs), such as olanzapine (OLZ), are associated with metabolic side effects, including hyperglycemia. Although a central mechanism of action for the acute effects on glycemiaExpand

Food restriction dissociates sexual motivation, sexual performance, and the rewarding consequences of copulation in female Syrian hamsters
Animals can switch their behavioral priorities from ingestive to sex behaviors to optimize reproductive success in environments where energy fluctuates. We hypothesized that energy availabilityExpand

In vivo interactions between cobalt or ferric compounds and the pools of sulphide in the blood during and after H2S poisoning.
Hydrogen sulphide (H2S), a chemical hazard in oil and gas production, has recently become a dreadful method of suicide, posing specific risks and challenges for the first responders. Currently, thereExpand

H2S concentrations in the arterial blood during H2S administration in relation to its toxicity and effects on breathing.
Our aim was to establish in spontaneously breathing urethane-anesthetized rats, the relationship between the concentrations of H2S transported in the blood and the corresponding clinicalExpand

RFamide-related Peptide-3 and the Trade-off between Reproductive and Ingestive Behavior
Synopsis Ingestive and sex behaviors are important for individual survival and reproductive success, but when environmental energy availability is limited, individuals of many different species makeExpand

Fate of intracellular H2S/HS− and metallo-proteins
Kenneth Olson has recently developed a theoretical model to predict how endogenously-generated intracellular molecules of H2S would diffuse within and outside the cells (Olson, 2013). Clarifying thisExpand
